for romney right now but the race could change until election day because we haven't had the debates. media sort of wishful thinking, trying too write off romney. i normally do not buy into the idea media is on board on one side. this the exception. this campaign season has been especially egregious in terms of them ignoring things that are bad about president obama and obsessing over things that mitt romney has done wrong. >> rick: cal, why? >> why? do you have to ask. my goodness. first of all these polls, we talked about this before on the show. i'm opposed to news organizations doing their own polls and making news from them. what you are going to see ten days, two weeks before the election is lot of story line being, hey the race is night thing because they want ratings the but these things are sophisticated form of fortune telling. i passed on the way studio, psychic, let me stop the cab and see who is going to win the election but it's the same approach. >> rick: the narrative that gets plays out in the media. it's almost over. if romney doesn't score, big in the first debate in denv
to admit president obama is actually leading mitt romney right now. despite what the polling data shows. well, stephen colbert weighed in. >> you can't trust polls, right fox news? >> the latest fox news polls give president obama an edge in three key swing states. once you isolate voters who are extremely interested in the election, the race is much closer. >> romney's tied when you focus on the inexpressibly intrigued. and he's up by two points when you count only voters who are psychotically engaged. folks, i have got my own source of polls, conservative blogger dean chambers who analyzed these polls favoring obama and then reached the scientific conclusion that they just didn't look right. chambers' work throws all polls into doubt now. even the internal ones i have taken of myself. i mean, the results say i'm not that excited about mitt romney, but as a conservative i feel like i should love him. maybe the sample size is too small or maybe i checked the wrong box and i'm actually latino, you know? >> it's not a good sign just six weeks from election day to bash the polls. >>> the f
papers are pretty much out there right now. all that you hear now is romney doesn't really want to be stuck in that little basement where they cut medicare. >> well, mitt romney was on the campaign trail today saying, i have a little secret, i'm going to win pennsylvania. okay. he's not going to win pennsylvania. >> it's the oldest state in the union. >> he's not going to win pennsylvania with paul ryan's profile on medicare or budget cutting or anything else. so if mitt romney is serious about making a play in pennsylvania, that just underscores how inconvenient paul ryan has become. look, mitt romney did not pick paul ryan because of paul ryan's medicare or budget programs. he picked paul ryan because of his youthfulness, because of the cultural appeal, because of what paul ryan himself calls the deer hunter catholic that he is, okay? that might sell in pennsylvania, but the other stuff won't. and if we're going to be cutting medicare at some point, which i think most voters understand, i think right now looking at these alternatives, they would rather have a democrat they kno
mr. obama holding a lead at six points. >> this ballgame for mitt romney right now. if he didn't do well it will be hard for him to get back. >> reporter: both candidates have check lists. romney has to avoid appearing detached. his to-do list. show compassion, that he is confident and he can, indeed, connect to voters. >> all three of those things, he suffered over the last couple of months, especially the last couple of weeks. so in those three "c"'s that is where he has to do well. >> and team obama knows it can be a game changer. president has to look strong and not passive and avoid appearing impatient and don't be long winded. >> they are trying to get him to answer questions right to the point. it's like his style and way he comes across. >> president obama is in nevada this morning where he'll spend the next three days in the debate camp. with so much riding on wednesday's debate, the question remains can mitt romney turning the polls around? on this week, chris christie says, yes, he expects romney to do just that. >> every time mitt romney has to confronted in this campaig
great for romney right now. but the race could change five times between now and election day, especially we haven't had the debate. the media is sort of wishful thinking trying to write off romney and i normally do not buy into the media that the media is completely on board on one side, this is the exception, this campaign season has been especially egregious in terms of them ignoring things bad about president obama and obsessing over things that are-- that mitt romney has done wrong. >> rick: cal, why? >> why? you have to ask why? >> i have to ask. >> oh, my goodness. well, first of all, these polls, we have talked about this before on the show. i'm opposed to news organizations doing their own polls and making news from them. what are you're going to see ten days, two weeks before the election, the story line, hey, the race is tightening because they want ratings and they want to sell newspapers, but these things are a sophisticated form of fortune telling. i passed on the way to the studio, a psychic, i almost said stop the cab and let me see who is going to win the el
helping dozens of people helping escape the consulate. >>> right now president obama and governor romney are getting ready for this week's big battle. first presidential debate. our next guest says it's the last cans to make that first impression. governor romney needs to figure out how to appear aggressive but nice while the president needs to avoid missteps. john fund is co-author of "who is counting?" great to see you. i was going to ask you first. is it a question when it comes to a first debate of first impression, what is the impact? >> for the challenger in this case, mitt romney it's very important because a lot of american people have only seen soundbites of him. this is almost like a job application. the first time the american people are going to be able seeing mitt romney for 90 minutes straight. therefore, it's very important he make a good i am presenting. for the president. this is president that was elected on enormous upsurge, hope and change in 2008. economy the sour. he has to recapture that and explain to the american people why they should waited longer for hope and
points. >> this is the ball game for mitt romney right now because if he doesn't do well in this debate, it's going to be hard for him to get back in the race. >> reporter: both candidates have checklists. dos and don'ts for the debate. mitt romney has to avoid appearing detached, that he can't relate to average americans. his to-do list, the three cs, show some compassion, that he's competent and that he can, indeed, connect to voters. >> all three of those things, he suffered over the last couple of months, especially the last couple of weeks. this those three cs, that's where he's got to do really well. >> reporter: while they lead in the polls, team obama know that debates can be a game-changer. so the president will have to look strong and forceful, not passive, and he needs to avoid appearing irritable or impatient, and don't be long-winded. >> they're trying to get him into the mode of being able to answer questions short, concisely and to the point, and so it's much more like his mannerisms, his style and the way he comes across. >> the pressure is on for this first debate, and
view this is negative for mitt romney. >>> i want to put up a chart right now. it comes from the "new york times" after that 47% comment right here, you see it right there, it look at how it opens up in that last week and a half that was damaging? >> well, it may well end being damaging. this campaign is all about process, it's about polling, campaign management. it's about everything but the issues. it's about everything but obama policies. how does that turn that around? >> stay totally focused on the fact for most americans, you can't tell the difference between the recession and the recovery. in fact, since this data came out this last month, the average american family lost $2500 of income during the obama recovery. they only lost 1500 worth of income during the recession. no wonder they don't think that the recession is over. >> donna, that's kind of astonishing. president obama defying gravity right now. >> i was looking at some of the recent polls, 42% of the country believe that the country is in better shape. that next year will be better. despite the doom and gloom, the col
with the a-team. governor romney is a clear underdog right now, so why won't the liberal media call him just that? an underdog. could it be because voters love an underdog? we'll take a look at histories november surprises. the prints presses running over time. wall street loves it. the economy, apparently, needs it, and with the easy money, we couldn't poly did over the cliff, could we? wall street legends say, oh, yes, we would. lou: stock market closing out a terrific third quarter as ben bernanke's easy money policies make investors feel good. we take that up with lou, neant money line, stocks finishing lower on the day, but posting the third best quarter since 2010. the dow jones industrial's dropping 49 points. s&p is down six and a half, and nasdaq down 20, but still well off the lows of the day. dragging the market today, consumer spending, up just half a percent, increase because of higher gasoline prices. oversea, bank of spain releasing an audit showing seven of the countries failed stress tests despite anxiety about the eurozone. the big three indexes up 44% for the quarter. a fe

five list of foreclosures in this country right now. i want to play something that governor romney said about foreclosures, and i want to get your reaction on the other side of the break and we'll talk about how this might be playing in nevada. take a listen. >> don't try and stop the foreclosure process. let it run its course and hit the bottom. >> ed, how much of a problem is that for governor romney in nevada? or have folks forgotten about it? >> no, i think those are the types of comments that when taken out of context or when people don't have the full context, people say, wait a minute. this is state that house suffered unlike any other. it adds to that narrative that democrats have enjoyed building this year, that this is a man who doesn't understand. in that kind of state, you have to somehow empathize with people suffering there and not necessarily suggest it could get worse. it's similar to how his comments on, you know, the bankruptcy of general motors have been used in ohio and in michigan against him and how, you know, other comments have certainly -- you know w that 47% co
has to be governor romney has to tie the poor economic conditions we find ourselves in right now to the failure of the president's policies. he has to be able to litigate and make the case that the policies the president has put forward have caused the economy to continue to go down. folks believe the economy is bad right now but what they don't actually believe is it is the president's fault. he has to make that case in the debate with the president standing on the stage with him that the president is the one to blame for the economy we've got right now. >> there is something going on. if he acts too much on the attack, it will look like he is showing disrespect to the president but if he doesn't, then he looks defer yen shl. coach me, tell me how to walk on that stage -- deferential. coach me without being deferential? >> it's a matter of tone and how you address the president. as long as governor romney addresses the president with mr. president, your policies have failed the american people. i think as long as he carries a respectful tone. he needs to be what i would say as p
. >> chris: suppose that the doubters are right and president romney takes office and the math doesn't add up. >> i have run them in congress and they do. >> chris: let's assume it doesn't. the question is what is most important to romney? kale bacscale back in the 20% r the wealthy or scale back and say we have to raise taxes for the middle class? the question is what is most important to him in the tax reform plan? >> keeping tax rates down by lowering tax rates people keep more of the next dollar that they earn. that matters. sin cent ives and progrowth policy and creates 7 million jobs. >> chris: that is more important. >> more important than anything. and it is not what deductions are in the tax code but who gets them and don't forget that the higher income people have a disproportionate amount of the loopholes that they use. when you close a tax write-off or tax shelter for a higher income person more of their income is subject to taxation so you can lower tax rates. where we go is by denying the deductions and loopholes to higher income people which allows us is to lower tax rates for
, if we lay out our vision well, will reward us for tell truth. and the president right now is avoiding the truth the way he's avoided so many hard truths over the last four years. >> schieffer: governor, if mitt romney does not win, are you going to run for president in 2016? >> mitt romney's gonna win, so it's a question that-- know, i don't need to address. i hope in 2016 to be work hard for mitt romney's reelection as president of the united states. and any conversation about anything else is going to turn out not to be necessary because mitt romney is going to be elected president november 6. >> schieffer: governor, it's always fun to have you. thanks for joining us this morning. >> bob, thank you for having me this morning. it's great to be with you. >> schieffer: from chris christie we turn to former house speaker newt gingrich. i guess i should ask you, are you going to run in 2016 if mitt romney doesn't win? >> i agree, i think we're all going to be supporting romney's reelection. >> schieffer: i heard you, mr. speaker, this week on television-- i think i heard you correctly sa
, right, right. okay. campaign is leaking strategy, what mitt romney wants to call barack obama on his deceptions. my question is, is it smart to leak the strategy and is that a smart strategy to go after obama's deception? >> it allows barack obama to polish his deception. [ laughter ] >> to are pointed i wouldn't agree with that strategy. that is pretty much what they have been doing up until now so far is reacting to bain capital and the rest of it. which 'puts them on defensive and having them play obama's game. i think romney probably needs to go in there with a thought out piece by piece critique of barack obama's economic policies linking him to the weak economy that he has presided over four years. i say that because my sense, paul, there are a substantial number of voters. people lo say i think i'm going to vote for president obama. i don't feel that strongly about it, but i don't think mr. romney has made the case with me. i wish i could hear him out before i make up my mind. this is the opportunity to do that. >> paul: that obama narrative is disaster. don't let mitt romney
. >> that comes down to the two theories of the race. one was right, one was wrong. the romney theory, tell ople it's okay even though the president's a nice guy to vote against him because everyone's primed to vote against him. the democrats went into the convention realizing they needed to make a substantive case and tear down romney's agenda. romney needs to build that up again. >> have you everybody observed, mortimer, how -- have you observed, mortimer, how much the president relies on a teleprompter and of course romney probably less so? but he's been out there in the field. obama really hasn't been debating, and he doesn't have a teleprompter during the debate. >> he won't have a teleprompter, but let's face it, he is an articulate speaker and i'm sure he'll practice enough so he doesn't need one. i have a slightly different view of what romney has to do. he has to establish himself as a credible candidate and credible occupant of the presidency. that is not something he has done just yet. if he comes across forcefully enough and with enough clarity on his program, then a lot of people wi
balancing act on wednesday night. >> how much pressure is he under right now? >> huge, huge. romney is behind in all of the battleground states. this is the last big audience that mitt romney is going to have with about 4 1/2 weeks to go. by the time, we get to the third debate in late october in the battleground states, because of this early voting, a third of the voters with votes already in the can. >> so far, the polls at least show that mitt romney hasn't been able to capitalize on the economy right now. do you think that he could do that with foreign policy? >> that's right. the 2,000th death. the president is also facing a lot of questions on the death of the american ambassador chris stevens in benghazi. he has to convince voters that he has the better answers on the economy. >> going to be something. thank you so much. >>> and don't forget to watch abc's "this week" later this morning. george's guests will include new jersey governor chris christie and white house adviser david plouffe. >>> and tune in wednesday of special coverage of one-on-one the candidates debate. at 9:
leadership to get the country back on track, to put the right ideas in place. that leader is mitt romney. [applause] that man is going to get our country back on the right track. [cheers and applause] very rarely do we see a situation where the man and the moment meet so well. this is a man who has shown one thing for his accomplishments, a decisive, principled leadership. that is the kind of man we need. [applause] it is not good enough for us to complain. we are not simply saying hire us because the other guy is inadequate and failed. we want to earn this victory. we want to deserve this victory. what we need as a country is a mandate and the moral authority to get us back on the right track and put the right ideas in place to get people out of poverty, out of living paycheck to paycheck. to get people back into jobs with higher pay so they have economic security so we can get the economy growing and restore the promise of the american dream for everybody. that means ideas. we are offering very specific, bold ideas to fix the big problems in this country. number one, we have so much en
that are less good. but i think both of them are going to do well. >> l.z, we're going to throw two to you right now. first let me ask you, does mitt romney have to avoid missteps. peggy noonan has said this is sort after a hinge, it's a turning point that has the potential to alter the dynamic of the election. do you see the debate as that crucial, the first one? >> absolutely. i think the first one is the only one that really matters. if mitt romney can't hit president obama in the first, who wants to hear what he says in the second and third? i want to make sure we're clear on one things. these haven't been gaffs by mitt romney. this is not the first time he's talking about not necessarily caring. he flat out said he wasn't very concerned about the slr poor. this isn't like a misstep. this is a consistent one. it's up to the voters to say whether or not they agree with him. >> at first let me ask you, how does mitt romney have to appear during that president debate? does he have to be deferential, aggressive? what is the right tone? when we saw him before when he was running for the nominee,
for tell truth. and the president right now is avoiding the truth the way he's avoided so many hard truths over the last four years. >> schieffer: governor, if mitt romney does not win, are you going to run for president in 2016? >> mitt romney's gonna win, so it's a question that-- know, i don't need to address. i hope in 2016 to be work hard for mitt romney's reelection as president of the united states. and any conversation about anything else is going to turn out not to be necessary because mitt romney is going to be elected president november 6. >> schieffer: governor, it's always fun to have you. thanks for joining us this morning. >> bob, thank you for having me this morning. it's great to be with you. >> schieffer: from chris christie we turn to former house speaker newt gingrich. i guess i should ask you, are you going to run in 2016 if mitt romney doesn't win? >> i agree, i think we're all going to be supporting romney's reelection. >> schieffer: i heard you, mr. speaker, this week on television-- i think i heard you correctly say that mitt romney is whistling past the graveyard

disgustingly bias pieces against mitt romney and i believe bill is exactly right. when barack obama was challenged in that univision interview, last week, by hojorge ramos, he looks uncrtable when he's confronted with facts and simply worded question, when mitt romney reminds people, we have 11.7 unemployment, not 8.1%, america's best days have to be in front of her, i think he wins, not by having a, quote, human moment. i think that is a fool's earring but having a moment of real leadership and maturity. contrasted with a celebrity president who is comfortable with ellen or any of these late night hosts, than he is talking to the families of these insider attacks. i think romney has to be mature, and forceful, and has this idea, it is all in this debate, that is too convenient for the media. >> chris: juan, talk about it. but, because we kind of keep forgetting about obama. what does obama need to do. >> i think, president obama, he's leading in the polls, nationally and leading in the swing states. so, the question is, how do you reaffirm the existing status quo? >> you know, the
